In The Corps of Commissionaires Management Ltd v Hughes EAT/0196/08, the EAT held that the entitlement under the Working Time Regulations 1998 to a 20-minute rest break where the working day exceeds six hours is an entitlement to a single rest break and not a rest break for every six hours worked. Where an exception means that the right to a rest break does not apply, the employer must provide compensatory rest, which should be granted at a time when the worker would otherwise be working.
